Eulalie d' Mandeville was one of the first women in American history to become the equivalent of a self-made millionaire.
When adjusted for inflation her amassed fortune in the 1840s was $4.2 million.
Ever the conscientious business woman, Mandeville reinvested her profits in stocks, real estate, and discounted bank notes. Her amassed fortune, $155,000, may seem paltry in today's deflated dollars, but in the mid 1840s that was the equivalent of $4,189,189.19 [source].
• NO MONUMENTS TO HER MEMORY
There are two primary reasons why the memory of Mandeville has been scrubbed by history revisionists.
First, Mandeville was a black woman.
Second, she thrived in the antebellum South.
Her success runs contrary to the revisionists' depiction of American history. Her legacy doesn't fit their false narrative! We are led to believe that our heritage is a tale of white supremacy in which no black person could advance beyond menial labor or slavery, let alone become a highly respected business person.
That Mandeville thrived in the midst of the place and time that represents the most reprehensible racism known to humanity does more than challenge the revisionist narrative of our racist past. It demolishes it. We are supposed to be shamed by a history of white repression of all non-whites when, in reality, our culture has always embraced and admired industrious people, regardless of their ethnic origins.
Her gender only increases the embarrassment of revisionists.
• REVISIONISM IS REAL RACISM
Dare we suggests that revisionists are the true racists?
By scrubbing American history of successful black women like Eulalie d' Mandeville, revisionists succeed in convincing us that we are the progeny of racial injustice that demands retribution, even reparations. Truth be damned.
Revisionism is racist in that it misrepresents the altruism innate to white people.
Revisionism is also racist in that it robs black Americans, women in particular, of successful role models.
• BRAIN CHAINED
Cultural Marxism plays a lyrical tune of black entitlement and victimization. It convinces intelligent black Americans that their efforts at self-advancement are futile; that economic achievement is deprived them by white privilege. Black women are convinced that there is no point in even trying to succeed. The system is now and has always been stacked against them.
Revisionism is racist in that it demeans all black Americans as a class of humans incapable of overcoming obstacles. In reality Eulalie d' Mandeville and others like her proved that the formula of Western culture coupled with free markets, ingenuity, and sweat equity is a doorway to prosperity opened for anyone with talent, intelligence, and the initiative to apply themselves.

• AND NO MEMORIAL MONUMENTS FOR MARY
While Mandeville was a free-born black woman who has been effectively erased from American history by revisionists, there were other enterprising black women in the antebellum South who were not free.
Mary Ann Wyatt was a Virginian slave who rented herself (and her five children) for $45 per year for ten years. During this time Wyatt established an oyster retail business. Each week she would travel sixteen miles to the Rappahannock River and buy two baskets of oysters which she sold on the town square to local residents in King and Queen County. Wyatt earned enough profit to purchase properties including a rental house.
Yes, black American slaves were allowed to own property. Did you know that? What other facts are revisionists hiding from us? Click here for Black history they don't want you to know.
• REVISION IN REAL TIME
Revisionists find it impossible to hide the legacy of Oprah Winfrey and her multi-billion-dollar media empire. After all, her face has been omnipresent on our televisions for decades.
Today's Eulalie d Mandeville is
Taysha Valez who made her
fortune in the cosmetics and
by the age of 23.
The Mainstream Marxist Media (MMM) often highlights the successes of Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg, Microsoft's Bill Gates, or investor Warren Buffett. Showcasing rich white males fits neatly in the revisionist narrative.
Today's Eulalie d' Mandeville -- Taysha Valez -- remains hidden from view. Cultural Marxism finds her success anathema to their tale of white privilege in a nation where intelligent black women are presumed to be locked out of opportunities for success.
It's history revisionism in real time.
Also hidden from view is the fact that the net worth of the average single American black woman is a paltry five dollars ($5) [source]. That would be nineteen cents ($0.19) in 1840 .
